This is my first post but been using this site for years as its one of the best, if not the best so i thought this would be a good place to get some answers for this new system Im getting in the next few days...
So i would like to get an i7 3770k but i dont think its within budget... so Iv gone with the i5 3570k. I have read a lot of threads about people asking questions regarding this processor and overclocking but as noone has posted with the exact specs my system will be iv had to create a new thread.
so at the moment iv chosen from cyberpowersystem :
Asus p8Z77 V pro Mobo with processor: i5 3570k @ 3.4GHz
nVidia GTX 650 2GB
2x 1TB raid drives
120GB SSD OCZ
16GB DDR3 RAM @ 1600Mhz
Corsair 600 Watts PSU (CX600)
1,200 RPM AKASA Silent Fan x3 120mm
CoolerMaster Hyper 412S CPU Fan with 4 x Direct Contact
and this costing me around £1000 exactly. So my questions are for you guys:
Is this good value for money?
Will i be able to OC the i5 processor to around 4GHz ~ 4.5GHz with these fans, cooling system and PSU
Is it worth me Ocing the RAM to 2133mhz rather than paying the exctra money? and will the hardware support it?
